Sandwich Notch Road – Upper/Lower Hall Pond

While exploring Sandwich Notch Rd in Sweet Ruby Jean today, we found a fantastic off-the-map road that takes you to one of the coolest potential primitive camping sites we’ve seen.

The campsite is accessible from the South at the gate at the end of the drivable part of Algonquin Rd.:


The road is labeled w/ a sign that says U17:


After driving down U17 for 20 minutes or so, you come to a parking circle:


Head down the path, and there’s a fantastic primitive campsite:


The site has trails coming off, which I think probably takes you to Upper and Lower Hall Ponds. If there’s a way to get here during ski season, this would be an amazing backcountry ski!
